    Terry Jones: Monty Python star dies aged 77

    https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-51209197

    Monty Python star Terry Jones has died at the age of 77, after having lived with dementia, his agent has said.

    A statement from his family said: "We have all lost a kind, funny, warm, creative and truly loving man."

    Fellow Python Sir Michael Palin described Jones as "one of the funniest writer-performers of his generation".

    John Cleese said: "It feels strange that a man of so many talents and such endless enthusiasm, should have faded so gently away..."

    He added: "Of his many achievements, for me the greatest gift he gave us all was his direction of Life of Brian. Perfection."


    This saddens me greatly. Although a far from perfect man, he supplied many hours of enjoyment to many people. I have fond memories of his wedding and staying in his house in my UK years.

    Ti quote one report: He remains bemused at the fierce opposition to Life of Brian expressed by many religious groups.

    "It wasn't about what Christ was saying, but about the people who followed him," he said. "The ones who for the next 2,000 years would torture and kill each other because they couldn't agree on what he was saying about peace and love."

    Boy it's hard to believe the surviving lads from Monty Python are approaching 80 years old.

    Their movies feel so timeless, I just assume MP are timeless as well. Until it hits me that virtually all their movies are significantly older than I am.

    No it is not - I feel that age! I sat with Alison Telfer (later Terry's wife) in their house to watch the first broadcast of the first show of Python. Now that make me feel old!

    Does the fact I went to their wedding improve the situation?

    Watched the first ever episode of Dr Who in my youth as well. That and recording the entire H2G2 series and selling copies for beer is about it
